Welcome to Making Her Mama!

Welcome to Making Her Mama!  Come find out why i picked that name for my blog.  Also, do you know why I blog?  It's to connect with you!  Come check out all that Making Her Mama has to offer you.

Welcome to Making Her Mama!

I’m so glad that you’re here!

 

A lot of people ask me what “Making Her Mama” means, so I wanted to share with you why I chose this name and why it’s important to me.

In my journey as a mother I wear many caps; wife, mother, homemaker, homeschooler and more recently, homesteader.

No matter which role I’m in, my kids are beside me – loving me, helping me, challenging & shaping me.

 

Motherhood is a time of great personal sacrifice & growth, and this blog is about sharing that learning and helpful resources with you.

 

I hope that you’ll find encouragement for the hard days, advice for keeping family life simple, support and resources for homeschooling, and ideas for making memories with your own family.

I’m looking forward to sharing with you all that I’ve learned.  I’m excited to come along side you to support and encourage you no matter where you are in your journey.

Question:
Do you use living books in your Homeschool?? And what books are on your TO READ list this year?? ---------------
Answer:
I LOVE living books as Charlotte Mason calls them!!! My kids have learned to really love literature by teaching them with stories instead of text books. We're reading The Little House series this year and a few select novels from Jean Craighead George as well!!! For my littles I have a whole list of living books! See the link in my bio if you'd like a copy of the book list ❤️
